Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Lonely
By Moon Kwan, trans.
 
By Wang Wei, Eighth Century, A. D.
Translated from the Chinese

WHEN the moon begins to grow
And the autumn dews to fall,
My silken jacket is lightly thin,
But I have not changed:
Wistfully I play my lute        5
Long and deep into the night,
For my heart is shy
Of the empty chamber.
